  1. Place chicken thighs and chicken breasts in a slow cooker. Whisk red wine vinegar, green onions, lime juice, and garlic together in a bowl; pour over chicken.
  2. Cook on High for 4 hours.
  3. Blend sour cream, chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, and 1/4 teaspoon salt together in a food processor until sauce is smooth; refrigerate until ready to use.
  4. Place chicken on a work surface and shred into bite-size chunks; season with salt and pepper. Measure 1/2 cup cooking liquid in slow cooker and discard the rest. Return shredded chicken and 1/2 cup cooking liquid to slow cooker and add cilantro; cook and stir until chicken is heated through, about 5 minutes.
  5. Spoon chicken into tortillas and top with chipotle cream sauce.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Heat is a personal preference. If you don't like a lot of heat, start with one chipotle pepper, taste, and add another if you like.
